Event description

Description

It’s been 10 years since the WHO Commission on the Social Determinants of Health reported on how to reduce inequities in power, money and resources and people’s daily living conditions in order to improve health equity. The progress has been patchy reflecting the many political and policy challenges which occur throughout the policy process - how issues get onto the agenda, policy formulation, implementation and assessment. Understanding and acting on these challenges will be a key step forward to acheiving more equitable health outcomes for all Australians. The National Policy Symposium is an opportunity for politicians, government officials, non-government organisations, media, researchers and the general public to engage on these topics, which are addressed in the CRE-SDHE. The Symposium will focus on what works and why in the commercial determinants of health, trade and investment, Indigenous affairs, urban environments, social protection/paid parental leave and health systems, offering a range of national and international speakers.
The Symposium will conclude with a panel discussion entitled “The 10-year Rollercoaster of Global Health Equity: Power, Progress and Pitfalls” hosted by Paul Barclay, Big Ideas, ABC Radio National. This discussion will be broadcast on the Big Ideas radio program.

Speakers include:

Professor Jeff Collin, University of Edinburgh

Professor Louise Signal, University of Otago

Professor Sharon Friel, Australian National University

Professor Fran Baum AO, Flinders University

This symposium is presented by the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in the Social Determinants of Health Equity (CRE-SDHE) in the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet) at The Australian National University.

The organisers would like to acknowledge the support from The Australian National University, Flinders University, The University of Sydney, the University of Ottawa and the Lowitja Institute.
